    What captains worry about is
    Capt "we will have this end"
    Ref "ok" and then to the other captain "kick or receive ?"

    I've seen many societies (both local and regional) with such coins. I'll stick to my JFK 50c until I can find another Eisenhower $1 coin.

    Receive please sir.

    This tends to be the point in the game where they stop listening to me

    I've been refereeing 6 years and never knew one of the captains should toss the coin. I've always tossed it and asked the away Captain to kick or choose ends. You learn a new thing every day.

    No no! Not the away captain - you should ask the winner of the toss!

    DUTIES OF THE REFEREE BEFORE THE MATCH
    3. The referee organises the toss. One of the captains tosses a coin and the other captain
    calls. The winner of the toss decides whether to kick off or to choose an end. If the
    winner of the toss decides to choose an end, the opponents must kick off and vice versa.

    Still think I must be missing something!
    Surely the point of the toss is to decide who gets to kick off or choose ends?????
